About

Accepting NEW clients! Are you wanting to improve your quality of life? Are you struggling from anxiety, life transition, or need help dealing with trauma or stress in your life? I provide a non-judgmental space for us to explore what you would like to work on. Together, we can work on processing thoughts and developing tools and coping skills to make a positive change and become the best version of yourself! If faith is important to you, we can include that in our sessions if desired.
I have worked with people suffering from anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief, ADHD, OCD, relationship/family issues, and more. I utilize a person-centered approach to ensure you feel heard, validated, and empowered. I also integrate other therapeutic approaches such as CBT or ACT and always tailor my approach to fit your specific needs.
I offer "after hours" sessions and a few spots on Sundays for students, parents, or working professionals with busy schedules. If you are interested or have questions, please do not hesitate to email me directly or inquire through the website!
